What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first stepped on campus a little over a year ago, I knew Mercyhurst University was the school for me. Part of the reason that I became interested in Mercyhurst was that they are the only school in Pennsylvania that is allowed to use real human remains for studies and the forensic science majors actually get to go to real crime scenes. The school is great for non-forensic majors too. I’m an ambassador, which is an elite club on campus and through it I give campus tours, so I know everything there is to know about the school. The campus is absolutely beautiful, we actually rent our flowers so when it starts to snow, because it snows a lot in Erie, the flowers are returned and then brought back in the spring. Additionally, we are a Catholic university that was founded on the idea of service. There are many volunteer opportunities on campus and students are always trying to help others. Campus is relatively small too, I can get to any building in about 5 minutes or less and class sizes are small. We have a 14:1 student to faculty ratio, which is great because it insures that all students’ voices will be heard. We also have two division 1 sports teams, which are men’s and women’s hockey, and hockey games are a really big deal on campus. The football games are a big deal too, they do a lot of tailgating during those, but honestly our team is not very good. I love Mercyhurst and I feel so honored to be a student here, but there are some downsides. One major thing is that they recently announced that students are required to live on campus all four years and they are currently building a new sophomore building that is very expensive. A lot of freshman right now are seriously considering transferring because they can’t afford to live in the new residence hall and it’s really sad because the school is so amazing. Like I said, I love Mercyhurst and I’m so happy that I’m a student here, so if you’re looking for a smaller school with a great community, Mercyhurst is the school for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercyhurst University is a place where they really make you feel like "Hurst is home". There is always something going on whether it be weekend activities the student government puts on, athletic events, club meetings, anything. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants a smaller school with a lot of diversity and acceptance. Everyone here is friendly and there are so many resources to help you with anything you need (volunteer, jobs, learning differences, academics, etc.). hurst is home!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school. From the moment I visited the campus my junior year of high school, I knew this is where I was going to spend four years of my life. I have made so many friends, gotten into activities I have never imagined, and learned so much, not just academically, but about myself as well. I could not have picked a better school to complete my undergraduate degree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my university, I have been attending mercyhurst for years. I attend classes that are flexible to my life as a mother and wife and employee. I’m able to get help tutoring and assistance with things in between. I’ve learned what’s needed to put forth to pass classes . I work to learn my subjects s well as network. I recommend this college setting.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At first I was weary of going to what seemed like such a small school. In reality this campus offers just as much, if not more than a campus that has a larger class sizes. The professors are all very open and and the science labs are great. There is always something planned by the student government that will fit all types of interests.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a very nice school if you're willing to pay a lot of money for a small, private, catholic education. Their intelligence program stands out and is one of the best in the nation, but in my opinion so far, the other degrees, majors, and minors offered are a bit on the pricey side for a student who does not play a sport on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The professors are amazing - they always have office hours, and even outside of office hours, they're often times available to help out and go over concepts that you don't understand. The food is pretty good mostly, and the dorms aren't terrible. Warde is much nicer than Baldwin and McAuley, but they're are livable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think this is a great small community type school. Its rare to cross campus without seeing several people you know. The professors are always there to help with regular office hours and they are great at making appointments outside of that time to fit your schedule. Also the campus is always gorgeous, decorated either with plants or snow depending on the season. There is a party scene that's easy to enter into or to steer clear of depending on your preference. Whether you party or not, there is always something to do on campus, lectures or gallery openings, or concerts and performances, whatever you're into.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I believe that Mercyhurst University is a private Catholic institution jam-packed with opportunities. Students are truly nurtured by knowledgeable professors, small class sizes, and the diverse and inclusive campus. Students are also encouraged by their professors to go beyond the gates of campus to participate in a wide array of volunteer opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved my time at Mercyhurst. Form the first day of my freshmen year till the time I walked at graduation I felt at home and felt like I was given every opportunity to flourish as a student and as a person. I was able to double major (Dance and Pre- Nutritional Studies) and even created a major that was specific to my needs. The facility was amazing, invested in their students, and always available to help their students. I wouldn't have changed a moment of my four years here.
